As we transition from the winter into the spring and final season of our 2015-16 school year, the Newton-Conover City Schools’ Board of Education recognized some outstanding students from Newton-Conover High School, the support of our community members, and a presentation from Dr. Heather Mullins, Chief Academic Officer.
To open our meeting, two outstanding N-CHS students, Addie Jo Welch and William Pitman, led our Board and attendees in the Pledge of Allegiance. Thanks to these outstanding students for sharing their time with our Board and community members tonight!
Mrs. Phyllis Pegram, Principal of Conover School, brought two incredible staff members before the board. Eileen Cangemi and Rebecca Schaeffer, both Teachers at Conover School, honored them for their support of the mission of Conover School. Very special to them, these ladies reach out in whatever manner they can to connect students to community and resources to further their potential. From administering the webpage, to leading district and community-wide fundraisers, these ladies truly go above and beyond. Thank you for your dedication to our students!
Dr. Heather Mullins, Chief Academic Officer, shared a presentation with the board outlining the district’s plans for Summer School in 2016. Superintendent, Dr. David Stegall, also congratulated Dr. Mullins on the successful defense of her dissertation to earn her Doctorate degree in Educational Leadership at Western Carolina University on February 1st, 2016. Congratulations, Dr. Mullins — we are proud of you!
